that must be because there have been 25 bugs blocking 0.6 release for more than a month now... :(

Download and execute the installer from Macromedia. When if gives you the choice, select "Other Browser" and browse to the Phoenix Plugin folder.

Even better, try this: ... /flash.xpi

a memory leak wouldnt cause it since itll simply go back to normal every time you restart the browser, all a memory leak MIGHT do is cause a temporary slowdown if the browsers been open a long time.

it may not even exist but a few people seem to have noticed it.

Well, it seems to me that since Phoenix will be "merging" with Mozilla in a few months, there may be some down time while the Moz team hammers out 1.4 final, then begins to gut Mozilla and make Phoenix the primary browser.

Just be patient is what I would say, phoenix will get a ton of development soon enough.

In the mean time, if you want something fixed right now, how about writing a patch? :)

Just installed it. Seems like a great build. I think the smooth scrolling feels a lot smoother, although I'm not sure if that's just me! Could it be possible?

You can now save new bookmarks but as far as I can see the export does not work.

Of course it would be nice, if some really annoying bugs would get fixed soon (Bug 184202 is another candidate of annoying bugs) - but remember that this is an open source project and you get this all for free! So as long as nobody else is able to fix that problem and to write a patch we will have to be patient until one of the devs have the time to get this fixed! :)

Hmm, this is the weirdest thing... I downloaded 20030407, and installed it the standard way I do, which is to delete my entire Px directory and folder, and then paste the new Px folder in. Its nice and fresh, but every time, I gotta go grab the extensions and stuff. First thing I noticed was that the custom icons for bookmarks were gone, and there was no way to assign them. I could right click on the bookmark link, select Properties, and the usual window pops up, but it was missing all except the first tab. Weird.

I shrugged it off, hoping that this build would be more stable than 20030331, which was still a bit wobbly when dealing with web forums/large images. I grabbed all the extensions I usually have; autoscroll, digger, optimoz, image nuker, themer, TBE, leech, UA switcher... Notes: nothing worked. No autoscroll (new version), on install, Px wouldn't recognize digger as a valid xpi file. Image nuker/Leech didn't add their context menus, TBE (new version from the 5th) wouldn't work, no optimoz either. Everything was fubared. Lived with it for about an hour before I gave up and reinstalled 20030331. Oops, same situation. No extension functionality at all. So I deleted everything and started over. Again, with 20030407. Clean install, just transferred the bookmark file from my old profile, along with pref.js, and my old theme. Then grabbed all the extensions again. Digger still not recognized, but optimoz, autoscroll, image nuker, leech, themer, UA switcher worked. TBE didn't add its context menu to the right click on the tabbar. Still no custom bookmark icons. Closed browser, opened browser. No change. I gave up.

Now, an hour later, everything is working. TBE, all extensions. Doesn't seem like anything is wrong with this. Except for the bumpy start, everything is smooth. Yes, the smoothscrolling seems smoother. Also, it works great on the Px Help page, where it used to be very slow. Now, its a breeze.

Here's another vote to fix the damn drag/drop bug. Creating a bookmark at this point is a bit more troublesome than it should be.

Note: Digger's site is down, that's probably why Px didn't find the xpi to be was a 404 error. 20030407 = peachy.

I'm using April 7 (Win ME) right now, and it seems to purr along nicely.

I had to create a new profile when upgrading from Mar 31. Before I did that, several extensions would not install properly. After creating a new profile, Preferential installed but doesn't work.

Well.. when I do an update I empty the "Cache" directory and the delete XUL.mfl file before I run new phoenix nightly. This should fix any XUL or other changes that might have been done between the builds. It should also fix a bunch of other things, like corrupted XUL.mfl file.
